So.... how is it?
Page after page of people trying to trade coupons, anyone actually have an opinion on this game?

My thoughts exactly

same, I'm kinda interested in this but it just seems a cheap hack n slash... I don't really like em. Is there something more to it?

I wanna get it, but i don't want to waste my money...

As for me, I can take hack'n'slash, especially with this kind of art style and post-apocalyptic setting. Still, the bad reviews and rumors about the game's bugginess concern me - can someone comfirm if the gamebreaking issues have been resolved from last year, for the single player mode at least?

It´s installing right now, so y´ll have to wait.

I like it, the play style is like Titans Quest and Magica. For the price I would say that it should be one to pick up if you like that type of play style. I like the setting of the game because I am a fan of post-apocalyptic type games

What's the download size? Not the install size, but how much I have to actually download?
zemor3067 Aug 6, 2013 @ 11:42am 
with me it was about 2300 Mb.

It is cumbersome, poorly optimised and tedious. Most advances in gameplay requires credits, which can only be gained by griding dungeons several times in a row, these include things like equipment, "talents" and even higher level characters. You actually have to purchase upgrades to raise characters level caps, upgrades which gets increasingly costly, and in the end just reduced all of it to mindlessly repeating poor framerate dungeons to be able to progress. And dont forget you control a team of 3 characters (with 3 potential extras), each of which will need these upgrades to be able to function later in game. Characters also only have 2 abilities each, all of which are rather flat in usage, there are 6 total characters for 12 differnt abilities total, most of which are very much akin to eachother. That being said, I like the setting and tone of the game, unfortunately those things cant merit a purchase when everything else is sloppy.

The above, and the fact that a lot of new things were promised by the devs, as well as fixes. None of those materialized, and the game seems to have been abandoned. Seems to me like whatever extra cash that can be gotten is being siphoned out of it. Big promises, no come-through. First time I say it, for any game, but this is a waste of money, at any price.

The devs pulled the same stunt with Lead & Gold, promising us bugfixes, new maps, and a decent singleplayer with bots. Excuse after excuse, then the official servers were shut and the devs went silent. But hey, they promised their new game Krater would get better treatment! Yeah right, these guys are the type who give small time devs everywhere a bad name.

The trailer says something like each character in your team has two power slots, so you can use 6 different powers at any given time.

This game is supported enough to have DLC, and Steam Trading Cards have recently been added to it, it is hard for me to believe any claims that the game has been abandoned.

I love good co-op games, co-op campaigns etc, I've had my eye on this one, I don't doubt that it may have its problems, and perhaps one or more of you guys have stability issues with it..... I'm still very interested and very curious, I may buy a single copy to try out before getting friend copies.

The trading cards are hardly any work to implement. The DLC were there on day one. And the stability issues are a well known fact even on the official forums. However, rather than help, the devs simply urge people to upgrade your computer, despite being able to play things more demanding. There is certainly some shoddy coding at work.

The trading cards are another means to milk this game for more money. There is NO implementation involved in adding Steam cards. All devs have to do is come up with however many pictures and send them off to Steam. Steam then just track game time and "drop" cards at random for you. Game is abandoned. Have a look at the Fatshark official site, forum, blog, etc

Krater is one of those games I want to like, it has its atmosphere, art direction and setting going for it, but it always feels like its falling short of its potential. The coop mode feels more like it has been tacked on because it has been promised. Krater manages to hide its grinding character for a while, which may make it even worse, as you reach the point where you recognize that there is nothing more. I've revisited it since buying it on release and found that nothing recognizable has changed.
